Holy Land Day 3
A full morning of sharing at the University of Bethlehem: a workshop on reconciliation and peace!
Fraternity lived in daily life, hidden to most people, is the focus of the conversation held with about 200 young people present at the Souborn Hall. The university itself is a striking example: its classes are composed by Christians and Muslims in peaceful coexistence, even though aware of their diversities. A young lady said: “I am happy to see with my own eyes that religion is not a division point but a starting point to build bridges.”
In the afternoon, visit to the Basilica of the Nativity: moments of deep emotion especially for Christians.
Tomorrow walk in the desert on the path of El Wadi Kelt, visit to Jericho, and then continue the Dead Sea.
